The cinquefoil emblem, also known as the potentilla, was a symbol of strength, power, honor, and loyalty. This five-petalled flower was depicted as early as 1033 in the architecture of churches in France,two years before the reign of William the Conqueror. The cinquefoil emblem was widely used in the architectural designs of many churches built in Normandy and Brittany throughout the 15th century.
